    Mari Ohno is a Japanese sound artist and researcher, based in Tokyo. She composes with matter to explore the boundary between the natural and the artificial, which is becoming increasingly blurred around us. She reinterprets natural elements and processes from post-anthropocentric view and harnesses the unexplored potentials of matter for her sonic and visual expression. Her practice represents the interdisciplinary explorations of co-composition between natural and artificial matter as otherworldly phenomena, by integrating current theories and methodologies in art, design, science, and philosophy. Her works have been exhibited and performed in public, including the Museum of Contemporary Art Tokyo, Science Gallery London, EMPAC New York, SARC Belfast, and Centro Cultural FIESP Sao Paulo. She has been awarded Sound and Music Embedded with Cafe OTO in the UK, the Jury Selection of Japan Media Arts Festival, and others. Alongside her practice, she is currently working towards a PhD at Goldsmiths, University of London. She graduated with an MA in Computational Arts from Goldsmiths, University of London, and an MA in Creativity in Music and Sound from Tokyo University of the Arts.
